University study can be a challenge… even more so if you have a disability or medical condition that you need to manage as well.

The University of Adelaide’s Disability Support team provide personalised advice and assistance to students with disability. Disability Advisors work with students to identify relevant Reasonable Adjustments, and provide information and advice about how to negotiate Reasonable Adjustments with academic staff.


Alternative Examination Arrangements

In order to arrange Alternative Examination Arrangements (AEA) students will need to register, provide supporting documentation and meet with a Disability Advisor prior to the cut-off date of each teaching period. Please refer to the 2023 AEA cut-off dates.



Who do we support?

Any student enrolled at the University of Adelaide with a diagnosed disability or ongoing medical condition may be eligible for assistance from Disability Support.
